(Update: live now!) Moto X, Nexus 6, and Moto 360 48-hour sale starts May 18th in the UK
Update, May 18: Live now! Head over to Motorola UK for the sale, valid through tomorrow, May 19 at 11:59 p.m.
Original post, May 15: With new flagships from Samsung, LG, and HTC taking up much of the spotlight these days, Motorola has done its best to bring the focus back to its Moto line-up through various promotions and sales. Many of these deals have been focused on the U.S. market, but starting midnight on May 18th, Motorola will be conducting a 48-hour sale in the UK. The UK sale will apply to the Moto X, Nexus 6, and Moto 360 smartwatch.
The Moto X will be offered for £299 and £339 for the 16 and 32GB models, respectively. Next up, the Nexus 6 is being dropped to £449 and £519 for the 32 and 64GB models. As for the Moto 360? The smartwatch will be offered for £150, a savings of £50. With all these products already over a half-year-old, are they still worth buying? Honestly, yes, they are well worth the money and should still offer high-end experiences that is nearly on par with newer phones and watches.
That said, if you enjoy being on the absolute bleeding edge, you might be better off waiting for Motorola’s next-gen offerings. Rumors suggest that the Moto 360’s successor may be just around the corner, and we can also expect a next-gen Moto X late this summer and a new Nexus (though reportedly not from Motorola) in the fall.
Anyone planning on taking advantage of Motorola’s sale, or would you rather wait to see what they bring out later in the year? Let us know in the comments.
